The Polar Plunge is Special Olympics Virginia's largest fundraiser, attracting more than
10,000 people to the oceanfront in February. The fundraising done at this event pays for most of the expenses of our program
- which is free to all athletes.
Our Chesapeake program costs
over $40,000 a year for uniforms, sports equipment, entry fees for local and statewide competitions, facility
fees, travel expenses including van rental, gasoline, meals, and housing. Every contribution to Special Olympics is tax
deductible, and you will get a receipt when you donate online.
You can help us raise these funds by joining
the CHESAPEAKE ATHLETES, Area 2 team. Plunge or help raise money
